Mini Vinnies at Tesco!

Following their meeting earlier today (Friday 24th May) with Helen Peters the Mini Vinnies used the money they had raised from their charity work to buy food and resources from Tesco to donate to our local food bank.

The children walked to Tesco and chose food and resources which they know will be gratefully received by the food bank!

The children performing the Nativity story

On Thursday 6th December our Mini Vinnies visited the residents at Broadway Halls Care Home to perform a Christmas Nativity and sing some Christmas songs!

They took some chocolates and biscuits to pass around at the end and they also had chance to have a chat to the residents. The children were very lucky enough to receive some Christmas tree shaped cookies too as a gift!

Everyone had a lovely time and it was a wonderful afternoon.

The Mini Vinnies on their Charity Winter Walk!

On Friday 23rd November the children from the Mini Vinnies team in school took part in a Winter Walk to raise money for the SVP charity.

The idea came from the children who wanted to raise money for the SVP and thought a sponsored walk around the local area would be a good idea!

Well done Mini Vinnies for your great ideas to raise money for the SVP and taking part in the sponsored walk even when the weather was REALLY cold!

Mini Vinnies and Dementia Friends

Friday, 9 November 2018

The children listening very attentively!

On Friday 9th November the Mini Vinnies welcomed a visitor from the Dementia Friends Society.

The children all listened carefully and learned lots about Dementia, how it effects people and their families in readiness for their visit to Broadway Halls Care home in December.  On returning to their classes the children even shared some of their learning with their friends.

Well done Mini Vinnies!
